Author's Summary: It's Hikaru's job to make people cry. He doesn't mind, much, until he meets Pavel. Which is when everything changes.

Review:
Cry Baby Cry is more of a character-study rather than a plot-focused story. The storyline is quite simple: research scientist Hikaru meets Pavel during one of his studies and gets a lot more than he signed-up for.

The characters in this story could have been original characters, but I think Sulu and Chekov work very well here. For whatever reason, the Reboot movie has created a large Chekov/Sulu shipper fanbase with almost archetypal Sulu and Chekov characterizations. Sulu has a strong need to save and protect, but more gentle and hesitant than Kirk’s bravado. Chekov may seem young and weak physically, but he’s very intelligent with a hard exterior (due to some sort of childhood trauma) and a tender heart.

Please keep in mind Chekov is quite young in this story. He insists that he is over 18, but Sulu thinks he could be as young as 15. We never really find out, and it was perhaps meant to be that way, like the other horrible things that happened to him when was even younger. I took Chekov to be as old as he was at the beginning of the Reboot movie – if they are old enough to join the military, they are old enough to havesex.

Author's Summary: A long time ago, in a historically inaccurate galaxy, relations between Japan and Russia are bad. A royal marriage is arranged to patch things up. The Russians trick Prince Hikaru into marrying Princess Pavel, who is actually a boy.

Review:
A Chekov/Sulu fairytale that trumps all fairytales!

The author’s summary totally made me crack up. Really? I had to ask myself, but then the story takes a turn at the place I least expected. Chekov and Sulu are both uber adorable, and their wedding night manages to be cute and sweet while maintaining a general sense of crackiness. This is the exact kind of fairytale I would have chosen for myself as a kid (minus the sex, probably)!

A light and easy read that guarantees to brighten your day. Trek fan or not, you don't want to miss this.

Author's Summary: When Pavel said that he wanted eight children so they needed to start right now, Hikaru thought he was joking.

Review:
A brief chronicle of Sulu and Chekov’s children. All eight of them.

La La How the Life Goes On is not a serious story or holds any serious literary value by any stretch of the meaning. But, if you like children, especially when they are not your own (i.e. you don’t actually have to deal with them), you will love this little fic. Entirely self-indulgent and comes with über-cute illustrations!

Little Shadow by Hollycomb (NC-17)

  • Sep. 9th, 2009 at 7:44 AM
Title: Little Shadow
Fandom: Star Trek Reboot
Pairing: Chekov/Sulu
Categories: angst, romance, pre-canon
Length: epic (~42,000)
Warnings: one scene of mild violence

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb
Website: n/a

Author's Summary: Sulu is Chekov's roommate at the Academy. Sulu is not happy about being saddled with a kid for a roommate, but eventually they become friends. Chekov falls in love with Sulu, and everything falls apart.

Review:
A few big things happen to Chekov at the age of fourteen: (1) he gets into Starfleet Academy, where he's always dreamed of going; (2) he sees the Golden Gate bridge in person for the first time; and (3) he falls in love with his incredibly handsome and funny roommate who does not love him back.

Little Shadow is written from Chekov's point of view, and OMG, it almost broke my heart. I say "almost" because they do eventually get together, but I really wanted to smack Sulu on the head a couple times because things would have been much easier if he weren't so set in his honourable ways (Sulu had good intentions, yet men can be so dense sometimes). The author had Chekov's voice spot on, which made the heart-wrenching parts that much more painful. A few other NuTrek characters also make cameo yet memorable appearances -- featuring Jim Kirk as the (sparse) comic relief.

Very satisfying and highly recommended!
